The Japanese defense forces couldn't stop Godzilla.....I captured the beast!
Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

Why I created this......

Born and raised in Gloucester, Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. For that reason artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years, they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!

I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

Going Into Hibernation !

The boat is a Sea Pro built in Newberry South Carolina in 2001. It is 21' in length with a 8'6" beam and has a fuel capacity of 81 gallons. She's powered by a 2000 200hp Suzuki two stroke engine. The first year I winterized her I had it shrunk wrapped. The dealer provided free shrink wrapping the first year I had her and I vowed not to do it again! By the time I removed the wrap dirt & debris got inside her from dozens of small holes that developed along the framing. Moisture was trapped along the rubrails and mold developed. Then the mess of throwing the plastic away. If I choose that route again it would cost in the $275.00 range! The following year I went to Home Depot and bought a 24' x 24' blue tarp for $35.00 and a couple of packages of mini bungee cords. That tarp lasted 5 seasons,kept the boat clean and dry too. Last year I bought a larger tarp, 30' x 30' for $65.00 because they didn't have the 24' x 24' tarp in stock. I had to "cinch" it down a few times during the winter so this time I changed the configuration of the framing this year. I made the frame work taller from bow to stern, a big "A" frame. Today the biggest hassle was the leaves,they are starting to come down en masse. They fill every nook & crannie and it took only a day to fill the boat! So out comes my air compessor to blow them out. Then it's a mad dash to get the boat covered before more leaves "rain" down again. Did I say I have two full grown Maple trees next to the boat?

Frame up!

Aft view!

Even the engine is covered!

And the trailer winch is covered!

Cover in place. I'll need to cinch it tight some more in the next few days!

Frame work last year!

Oh, it's that time of year again.

"Glosta Logic"

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
